My name is James Coulson, I am 26 years of age. I have recently moved from South London to West London.
I started learning to play drums when I was 11 and very quickly flew threw the grades, passing Grade 5 while still in school. I chose not to focus on grades after as it is my personal opinion they do not teach you the important skills required to be successful at drums.
I have been in several bands and orchestras, from jams with friends to performing at festivals with extra-curricular orchestras.
I played with the orchestra and jazz bands while at High School.
While at Sixth Form College, I was also involved with an independent jazz band that played several private and public functions as well as many weddings.
While at uni in Oxford, I joined a punk/rock band that gigged usually more than once a week, including playing at the O2 academy Oxford and the Hope and Anchor in London.
I have also played for many years in church bands, starting at 13 while in school, while on my gap year and at uni.
While on my gap year, I was also in a cover punk band playing many of the local venues.
I now play in a covers band that plays regularly in London venues and functions, as well as the odd wedding.
While on my gap year, I worked for a charity that ran many toddler, kids and youth groups, as well as working in the local schools running extra-curicular activities. Therefore, I have had a lot of experience working with children and teenagers of all ages, and at times teaching them as well, albeit not drums.
I have also been teaching drums in South London for the past four years. I have kept on a few students, but as I am now relocating, and several are leaving for university, I am better suited to teach those who live in the Ealing, Brentford, Chiswick, Richmond and Hounslow areas.
I have always been passionate about drums since the day I picked up some sticks, and my enthusiasm and wide depth of knowledge of the instrument will make sure that every student will become a well-equipped and intelligent drummer.
